Question about 1994 Ford Crown Victoria

1 Answer

Instrument Panel and Tail lights aren't working and fuse good

I've changed the fuse even though it wasn't blown and in the past this happened but then resolved itself by the next time I drove the car. It isn't fixing itself anymore. Those are the only two things that do not work.
I am a girl and no auto mechanic training but have done some repairs on previous cars with instructions sucessfully.
The check engine light comes on and off depending on its mood if that might have anything to do with. I have changed the oil and air filter regularly as well as check hoses and fluids.
I just do not have the money to have it fixed and need to drive. Any help would be deeply appreciated.

Sounds like the head lamp switch on the dash. Check the connector at the back of the switch and make sure it is still seated properly. Over time it can accumulate dust which will draw moisture and can cause slight corroding. If the connector is still in good shape and seated, I would replace the switch. Might be a simple fix.

2000 Lexus LS400 Instrument panel fuse


It's more likely a fuse is blown, the tail lights are on the same fuse as the dash illumination, check the tail lights if they are not working replace the fuse marked 'tail' in the fuse panel on the inside at the left side of the dash under the cover. At the same time check the 'gauge' fuse', there is a fuse location diagram on the cover.

My dash lights aren't working. I've checked all the fuses and they are fine.


Hi Rblack, As the fuses are all okay the most likely cause is that the bulbs that illuminate the instrument panel have blown. If you look at the instrument panel I'm sure there are some screws which hold it in. Remove those and gently pull the instrument cluster forward and check the lights for operation. Regards John

Instrument panel lights dont come on when the headlights are turned on. and no tail lights


These circuits are usually tied together. The loss of the instrument panel lights lets you know that you have problems with tail lights. Check your fuse panel for a blown fuse in this circuit. Best of luck,

Tail lights and instrument panel lights stopped working, no apparent fuse blown


If your absolutely positive fuse is not blown, I'd replace headlight switch. H/L switch powers dash lights and tail lights.

Inside dash lights and tail lights won't turn on in my '95 Isuzu Rodeo, what can I do?


My 97 Rodeo had the same problem. No Tail lights, no. Dash lights. There is also an annoying buzzer that goes with the set telling you the lights are on, there is no key in the ignition and your door is open. (you don't notice it when it's gone but you sure notice it when it's back)
The Fuse (taillight Illum) was good, The Light relay under the hood was good and all bulbs were good.
What fixed this problem was replacing the tail light relay which is located in a panel just to the left of the brake pedal also called the kick panel.Inside there are 3 relays. I replaced the one in the middle and got everything to work.
If you need to identify the relay you can put your hand over it and then turn the lights on and off. The correct relay should click. Mine was the middle one.
Hope this helps someone because it stumped me for months.

My tail lights and the lights on my instrument panel went out.


The first thing is check your manual for fuse locations, then check all the fuses. because if all the fuses are good then its a wire harness problem
and you will either have to take it to a dealer or a shop that specializes
in electrical.

I have a 2000 Ford Focus Wagon. tail light and instrument panel


i have a 2000 focus wagon and had the same problem. It's not the fuse! It's the wiring harness at the point where it leaves the body and goes into the hatch. When the hatch is opened and closed repeatedly after years the wires will break with constant bending. I had to solder together 7 wires and the problem was solved. It's a lot cheaper than replacing the entire wiring harness.

No tail lights/instrument lights on 2001 Ford Focus Wagon


Your problem is you have a Hot Wire touching ground.I know this for sure! The quwstion is where is it?the cause of the problem. It can be fixed but you would have to have a lot of patience.Try using your nose,sniff out the smell of burned copper under the dash or in the trunk area if you can smell it you can find it.Up the rating of the fuse go 15 then 20 then 25 see if it still blows it shoud. I wished I were near you man I love these problems.Good luck!

Tail lights and instrument panel lights dont work


The Dash and Tail lights connect to the same fuse in most cars. if the fuse is okay, check to make sure the tail lights and/or dash lights are properly grounded. all bulbs could be blown...but highly unlikely.
